Andrew Jenks, Dylan Ratigan Team for Production Company (EXCLUSIVE)

Producer and TV host Andrew Jenks and journalist Dylan Ratigan are launching New York-based Jenks & Ratigan Prods. to generate TV, movie and digital projects.

The duo is promising to deliver “substantive, entertaining content that humanizes storytelling.”

“We’re focusing on projects that we’re passionate about,” Jenks told Variety.

The production company is located in a 3,000 square foot studio off of Central Park West. Its first project is an ESPN Films “30 for 30” digital short titled “Posterized: The Story of Shawn Bradley,” which premieres on May 21 on Grantland.com.

The company is also working on a feature documentary focused on young HIV/AIDS activists around the world. The film, developed in partnership with the MAC AIDS Fund, is slated for release in September.

They are also producing and directing the upcoming documentary, along with Chip Rosenbloom, about Ryan Ferguson, who was recently released from prison after serving 10 years following a wrongful murder conviction.

Ferguson was convicted for the 2001 killing of Kent Heitholt, sports editor for Missouri’s Columbia Daily Tribune. The filmmakers focused on Ferguson’s conviction being based on the testimony of two witnesses and their admissions that they committed perjury.

Ratigan is the author of “Greedy Bastards,” a former MSNBC host and former global managing editor for corporate finance at Bloomberg. Jenks is the host of MTV’s documentary series “World of Jenks”; his documentary credits include “Room 335″ and “The Zen of Bobby V.”

Ratigan resigned in 2012 as host of MSNBC’s “The Dylan Ratigan Show” to work on global resource management and sustainable systems.

The duo first met in 2010. “Andrew told me he thought I could do a lot more than just talk to an audience,” Ratigan noted.
